Tuesday’s aspect between Mars and Uranus will surprise you with an unexpected evening’s entertainment. Family matters are paramount on Wednesday. Thursday is a good time for reflection on past mistakes to ensure they will not be repeated.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)

The Moon’s conflict to Jupiter, tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon, could encourage you to promise more than you can deliver. The consequences will manifest with the Full Moon on Sunday and are likely to be embarrassing, unless you had the foresight to hold your spontaneity in check. You are likely to get your wires crossed on Wednesday evening in the field of communications, when you should think twice before jumping down the throat of some poor innocent party and making a fool of yourself!

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

There is a time and a place for everything but we need the knowledge before we can apply the rule. Sunday’s Full Moon, in the sign of Scorpio, will put your diplomacy skills to the test.

Thursday’s Moon joins hands with the generous Jupiter, in your opposite sign, Capricorn, to bring you into contact with powerful influential friends.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

Things are looking up in the general sense, as tomorrow (Saturday) the Sun enters the sign of Taurus, your solar house of goals and ambition.

The Full Moon on Sunday will reinforce your resolve to successfully carry out your plan of action. Venus and Jupiter are at odds on Wednesday, when you might find you are spoiling for a fight.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

Your ruling planet Mercury is in good aspect to Jupiter today (Friday) when you are likely to find a window of opportunity. This should put you in good spirits over the weekend and make you feel more kindly than usual toward family members. The Moon enters your sign on Tuesday to join hands with Saturn, when you should see results from efforts of the previous month. Venus is at odds with Mars and Jupiter on Wednesday evening, which could put the cat among the pigeons in your business and financial affairs.

LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)

You have to take the rough with the smooth at times and this could be one of those exasperating phases when nothing seems to go to plan. The important thing is to stay focused and to stick to your guns. Sunday’s full Moon in the practical sign of Taurus will help dispel any worries that might have become magnified in your imagination. Keep a clear head to handle distractions that could arise on Wednesday when Venus, your ruling planet, challenges Mars and Jupiter.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

You might feel your authority is being challenged today (Friday) but there is no need to use a sledge hammer to crack a hazelnut! You will only waste precious energy. Sunday’s Full Moon in your opposite sign, Taurus, will pave the way forward, enabling you to settle things once and for all. Pluto’s influence should lend power to your elbow as you navigate your way through some tough negotiations on Wednesday. Thursday’s Moon is set to spring a surprise in the financial sense, so keep your wits about you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

The Moon moves to challenge your ruling planet Jupiter tomorrow (Saturday), when you are likely to find yourself out of your depth.

The Moon enters your sign on Tuesday night and comes into conflict with Saturn, when younger family members are likely to give you a headache! Venus and Mars are at odds with one another and with Jupiter on Wednesday when you should hold your purse strings tightly.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

There are changes afoot this week but keep your eye on the ball, since there seems to be a tendency for things to get out of hand. You might be aware of some rumblings today (Friday) which are likely to erupt during the weekend on the home front. The Moon’s challenge to your ruling planet, Saturn, could put a damper on your hopes on Tuesday. Wednesday’s aspects are liable to leave you with a modicum of discomfort, but if you sit tight and refrain from taking drastic measures, it will all come right on Thursday.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

This weekend the penny finally drops over a situation that seems to have rendered you powerless. However, Sunday’s full Moon marks the end of the matter and you are advised to attend to those practical affairs that have been put on hold. You will have your work cut out on Monday and Tuesday, if only to bring things into order. Wednesday requires skill and diplomacy in the field of communication. Thursday’s Moon will set the scene for an evening of pleasure and romance.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

You seem to be swimming in two directions this weekend, uncertain of the course that you need to take. Reserve your judgement until after Sunday’s Full Moon, giving your emotions a chance to settle down. There are one or two loose ends requiring attention on Monday before you can proceed. Tuesday’s Moon moves into conflict with Saturn, when you should hold back from making any decisions – do not over commit yourself. The Moon’s aspect to Uranus on Thursday may surprise you with a romantic encounter.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Life seems to have been hectic over the past few months and this weekend is no exception. It might be wise to slow down and take stock of your financial affairs following Sunday’s Full Moon. Mars, your ruling planet, is challenged by Venus and also moves into conflict with Jupiter on Wednesday, when the truth will out, leaving a few folks in an uneasy state of discomfort! Thursday is a good time to lay a ghost from the past and move on.
